    Flow Flex Dogbone

    Yeh you shouldbt need to file anyway, just drill out the old rubber, cut the outer ring with a hacksaw and then the old bush will tap out. Then for the new one just push it in and then press the metal tube in

    Flow Flex Dogbone

    Looks to me like it just pushes in from one side and then you press in the metal tube, similar to ppwerflex but in one part. I'd just get ppwerflex to be fair, tried and tested for years, I've never heard of flow flex

    Bit of a niche question - Partner on your insurance

    Same. Admiral with all mods declared was a reasonable price on my civic, it was a complete pain in the arse trying to even get a quote out of sky and Adrian flux so I gave up and just renewed with admiral. They literally charged me nex to nothing per mod anyway, I think it went up by 15 quid.

    Sorry I completely misread your post, I just assumed manifold to cat as the other one your after is literally just 2 nuts and bolts

    Should I get the belts done before trying to sell?

    They probably aren't tbh. You only hear of the bad ones, every Clio owner in the country doesn't post on here to tell us their timing is spot on after a belt change

    Clio 182 MOT Fail - Emissions

    Yeh I'd stick a pre cat lambda sensor in, post cat doesn't really do anything. You could try swapping them over, but if they are both the same ages then likely both are past it. Is it an OEM cat? My 182 had a pattern cat on it and failed the mot every year, I then managed to get a genuine 182...

    Brake pipe ‘bung’

    Yeh itl be fine. But jamming the pedal to the floor with a piece of wood between it And the seat also works

    Should I get the belts done before trying to sell?

    To be fair these must be the only car I've come across where people on forums treat belt changes like some kind of holy ritual, and if the belt wasn't done by the chosen specialist it's worthless lol. It's a Renault clio lol, not a lambo

    Treating wishbones before fitting?

    I had some orange powder coated ones, wasn't a spot of rust on them when I sold the car

    Should I get the belts done before trying to sell?

    Yeh your average punter isn't going to pay an additional 500 quid because you says it's had the belts done. I'd just advertise it at around the ballpark figure, knowing that you will probably get knocked down 500 or so due to the belts. You never know, some idiot who doesn't know any better...

    What exhaust doesn't make me want to uninstall life

    I had a ktec/janspeed 2.25" on my 182, really nice sounding system, not too loud

    What exhaust doesn't make me want to uninstall life

    Lol I had a ktec stealth, horrific sounding things. I had toyed with the idea of chopping the stealth pipe off, and aiming it out of the rear bumper in a cutout, as apparently that reduces the drone, but in the end I just sold the car

    Renault did the cambelt...

    During that 10 years it could also have had somebody playing with the timing trying to replicate group N?

    182 discs and pads all round. Any suggestions, please?

    Stick a pic up of the discs. Depends if they have got a lip or not really, no point changing them of they are still close to maximum thickness.

    Cat replacement

    Crazy init. I got 440 for my fn2 civic cat. Tommy is your boy for the best price. Or sell it to Yorkshire pudding, let him take a cut, and then you don't have to wait 3 months for Tommy to message you back on Facebook lol

    Cat replacement

    Haha I recently did it with my civic. What I got for the OEM cat covered the cost of my new 421 manifold and a magnaflow sports cat (which is still sat in the shed as I fell in love with the sound and decided against welding it in lol)

    engine swap for mk3

    Yeh I wouldn't bother, a 197 can be had for peanuts now. By the time you've got the engine and put it in I bet your not far off the cost of a 197, and then You've got a Clio 3 with a good engine but a non rs chassis, brakes, suspension, and paying the cost of modified car insurance. Seems...

    Cat replacement

    I'm surprised there's a thing left of your oe cat! My phase 2 172 cat collapsed and I replaced it with a 90 quid cats2u cat which worked perfectly fine. I wouldn't bother with a sports cat, even a decat doesn't really gain you much, so a sports cat for the price of them seems a waste of time

    Uneven rotor/pad wear on new discs/pads

    Sticky slider pins or a sticky piston would cause that. Rebuild kits are only 20 quid from big red and come with new seals and pistons. Well worth doing.

    Yeh the rears are a pain In the arse, once you've got the cage off, it's a bit of a pain in the arse but you can just about get an open ended spanner In there at a funny angle
